5 – 14 March 2020
SPINE Festival, for children, young people and families, takes place each year in libraries situated at the heart of London’s communities. The free programme of spoken word and arts activities includes artists in residence, a variety of workshops, rhyme times, storytelling sessions and theatre shows.
